Not a surprise about Band-Aid since Manilow wrote many jingles in his early days.

I can't help but mention that British Kit Kat bars are far superior to those sold in the US. Enjoyed the piece about the jingle--thanks.

British chocolate is far superior to American, even so called Cadbury, which tastes nothing like UK Cadbury. I believe ours is produces by Hershey.

I was glad to see the 'Burnt Toast is Back' email this morning and looking forward to what you'll have in store this season! I enjoy Kit Kat (and Coffee Crisp) bars and now have a mashed version of their jingles in my mind. During a trip through England and Scotland many years ago, I always wondered why the only sign above seemingly all the corner shops I saw in the U.K. were for Kit Kat bars. Your discussion with Michael Levine may partly explain that with the idea of it being shareable, enjoyed by all, perhaps struck a chord (pun intended!) with the Brits? Or, perhaps it just makes for an easily partitioned chocolate biscuit to have with tea. In any event, a fun podcast and it brought back some nice memories of that trip for me! BTW, I just ate some mini Kit Kat bars yesterday - coincidence?!
